    800w will cost about 13p a hour. Give or take.

    I put an oil filled radiator in back of van,not sure on wattage but I set it just above low setting on thermostat so it clicks on and off.
    Van is around 3-4 degrees just to stop freezing.

    Guessing there's a thermostat that'll click on at a certain temp?

    I used to have one in the pump shed above our bore hole in years gone by. During that bad winter 2010 maybe, we had a powercut and everything froze up. Ended up lighting a fire in the shed and pretty much burning it down just to thaw out the pump!

    Bang on. Been using one for years now, and in my opinion are the safest option.
